MPLS over GRE tunnels between remote sites using MLXe routers

Hello Community,

I have a tricky question to submit. We are looking into the possibilty of transiting MPLS packets over GRE Tunnels between MLXe routers using our transit providers.

TRUST ME, IF I COULD DO THIS ANOTHER WAY, I WOULD.

According to NetIron configuration guide (version r05.2.00b), chapter 38 / section "MPLS Over GRE Tunnel", this solution is possible. Please also refer to the attached file.

My question is : We only have one router per site, can the ingress and transit routers be the same one ?

Thank you for your time.

Best regards.

Youssef.

Hi Youssef,

     I just reread that section and I do not think that can be done.  My understanding is that it needs to be two routers at each end.

Thanks

Michael.
